So, technically, you can paint floor tiles in the literal sense—but the results won't last as long as you want them to, and there's a chance painting tile floors can actually cause maintenance issues.

Subsequently, question is, can tiles be painted? Most ceramic tiles can be painted, as long as it's not frequently subjected to water or heavy wear. For instance, you can paint tiles on a bathroom wall, but avoid painting tiles that line a bathtub, shower, or that is on the floor or a countertop. Repair chips, cracks and other surface damage before painting.
Also asked, what kind of paint do you use on ceramic tiles?
There are two painting options for tile:
- Latex Paint: Apply one to two coats of a bonding primer that's made to adhere to surfaces such as tile.
- Epoxy Paint: Apply two coats of a two-part epoxy paint that's made for tile and other hard to paint surfaces, such as Rust-Oleum Tub & Tile.
Is painting tiles a good idea?
Painting over existing tiles is a good solution if retiling is too expensive or too much trouble. There are specific tile paints that can be painted directly on to the tile with no need for primer or undercoat. Providing you choose a good brand, these should be fine, although the colour range may be limited.
